Carpets that write the verse of evil eye.

The verse of evil eye (Template:Lang-ar) is verse 51 and 52 of Al-Qalam Surah in the Quran. It is usually recited for protection from the evil eye. It states: "And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the message, and they say: Indeed, he is mad. But it is not except a reminder to the worlds (68:51 and 52)."[1]

The context of the verse

وَإِن يَكَادُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَٰرِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا۟ ٱلذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُۥ لَمَجْنُونٌ

Verse 51: And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the message, and they say, "Indeed, he is mad."[2]

وَمَا هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌۭ لِّلْعَٰلَمِينَ

Verse 52: But it is not except a reminder to the worlds.[3]

Exegesis

The verse refers to evil eye which is a kind of psychological effects and there is no rational reason to deny it. This meant that they want to make Muhammad sick and die with special look.[4][5][6] It also suggested that the verse is metonymy of very angry glances. It is like to say they look very furiously as if they want to kill Muhammad.[7][8][5] In addition the grudges of disbeliever lead them to contradiction. On the one hand they understand the importance of Quran insofar as they desire the destruction of Islamic Prophet, on the other hand they accuse him of madness.[9]
